~ My Review
Wow. I seriously finished this book speechless. The writing is absolutely beautiful, the emotions are realistic and raw, and stories amazingly told. *squeals* I absolutely loved it!!! :D
Whispering Leaves Saga is a delightful collection of seven short stories, all tales of the same characters. The fantasy storyworld was really amazing, and I loved the castles and kingdoms. ^_^ Aside from catching a few typos (3-4 at the most), I seriously have no complaints about this book. Precious...amazing. Ahh!! <3
Whispers of the Morning -- 5 stars
Such a sweet story! I loved how what happened in the beginning of the story wrapped back around at the end. :)
The Tale of Silver Leaf -- 4 stars
I didn't like this one *quite* as much as the first, but it was still good. The sacrifice by the Woodlenn boy at the end tore me up. <3
Escape -- 5 stars
Lovely! This was the first story to include characters from both the previous two. It was fast-paced and exciting, but left some room for explaining.
The Crowning -- 5 stars
This one included the explanation of the aforementioned story (Escape) along with some excitement all its own. Secrets being revealed!
The King's Quest -- 4 stars
There wasn't quite as much to this one as the others, but it was still great. Golden Eagle and Willowy Whisper are the cutest. <3
The Keeper of Every Tomorrow -- 5 stars
This story absolutely broke my heart, with its beautiful title and beautiful storytelling.
Henceforth and Forever -- 5 stars
And this one was beautiful too. Like, seriously, I have no words. It's closely connected to The Keeper of Every Tomorrow and wraps up the series of stories quite nicely.
"You could not have defeated me, good sir. Do not vex me by slaughtering my pride, lest I should have to prove my words and kill you."
But the sweet tone in her voice belied the pain she was feeling in her heart as she watched the most precious man in her life walk away.
